'Y&R' Spoilers: Ashland Staged Own Death – Vanishing Act All Part of the Plan?

Young And The Restless spoilers tease Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) may still be alive. After Ashland came to Victoria Newman's (Amelia Heinle) home, things began to spiral. 

Victoria feared for her life, but Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) came to her rescue. Nick and Ashland came to blows. When Nick punched Locke, he fell and hit his head on the brick fireplace. Nick and Victoria were certain that Ashland was dead.

The brother and sister left the house briefly but returned to a shocking scene. Ashland was gone. Then Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) showed up. 

Chance Chancellor (Conner Floyd) arrived shortly thereafter. The police officer questioned Nick and Victoria and concluded that Ashland was still alive. Nick was not buying it. 

After Chance left, Nick asked Victor what he had done. Y&R spoilers for the week of July 25 to 29 suggest that Victor will deny doing anything with Ashland's body. 

Victor will also claim that he had no idea that Ashland was in Victoria's home. Did Ashland walk away on Young And The Restless?

Y&R: Ashland Pulls Off Another Scheme?

Ashland has proven quite capable of pulling off an elaborate scheme. He got Victoria to fall in love and marry him. He was also able to convince everyone that he was dying from cancer. All so Locke could get his hands on the Newman empire. 

Could Ashland's disappearing act be part of a revenge plot? This is not the first time an ex of Victoria's faked their death to get revenge on her.

Ashland has become increasingly unhinged and has nothing left to lose. He lost his business, money, reputation, and son. Perhaps Ashland is biding his time waiting to strike back against the Newmans. 

Meanwhile, Victoria and the family would live in fear of Ashland's next move. Or perhaps Victor was not being honest with Nick. Y&R spoilers for the week of July 25 to 29 divulge that Victor will put everything on hold to handle this latest crisis. Maybe Victor is holding Ashland captive on Young And The Restless.

Is Ashland Alive or Dead on Young and the Restless?

Ashland appeared to be fatally injured, but he may have had a pulse despite Nick being unable to detect one. Or maybe that was not Ashland at all. 

Masks are all the rage on soaps. Perhaps someone was wearing an Ashland mask. Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) warned Victor that he had no idea what was coming. Could Adam be working with Ashland?

Victor will still be working to protect Nick and Victoria.Y&R spoilers for the week imply that Ashland's body will be found in his car. 

Yet there are so many questions. Did Victor place the body there? Is that even Ashland in the car? Perhaps Ashland will live to continue his reign of terror on The Young And The Restless.
